While the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am drew plenty of attention for a variety of reasons in recent days, the play itself has been impressive for the most part. The event which features a cut after the third day as opposed to the second entered the homestretch with Paul Casey holding a three-shot lead over Phil Mickelson. The purse for the event is set at $7.6 million, and roughly midway through the final round, there was a major push at the top of the leaderboard.

As detailed, the winner will receive $1.368 million while second place earns $820,800 and third takes home $516,800. The 2018 event was won by Ted Potter Jr., who missed the cut this year when he was unable to bounce back after shooting an 82 in the first round and finished the three-day stretch at 12-over par.

The fourth and final day of action was delayed when hail began coming down, as the Pebble Beach Pro-Am Twitter account showed.

Weather delayed the start for multiple players on Sunday as play was suspended just before 2 p.m. EST. Fortunately, the event was able to resume just after 4 p.m. EST, setting up an interesting battle atop the leaderboard. The hail came just one day after wind and rain took over the action on Saturday.

Structure of Pebble Beach Pro-Am

This event differs from many on the PGA Tour, as the Pro-Am features 156 pro golfers and 156 amateurs. As the official website of the event details, the first three rounds are played on three different courses – Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore.

The Pebble Beach Pro-Am is staged by the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, which has supported hundreds of nonprofits.

“Monterey Peninsula Foundation is proud to host the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. In the last fiscal year, the Foundation donated $13.2 million to support local nonprofits in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito Counties.” the website states.

Following the event at Pebble Beach, the action shifts to the Genesis Open on February 14, which is played at the Riviera Country Club. Bubba Watson will look to win the event for the fourth time in six years while it’s also expected that Tiger Woods will be in the field for his second start of the year.
